Which Remora for P83?

Post by gman68w » September 11th, 2017, 12:04 pm

I keep seeing recommendations for this brand of IWB for the Wanad, but there's no listing for the P83 in any of the dropdown menus when choosing a pistol fit. There's plain Mak, and P64, but no P83 specifically.

Which Remora IWB holster is best for it?

I guess that's just model #12D? Apparently that one's fitted for the Para Ord. 1911? I'll try it. They're having a 40% off sitewide sale at the moment, with one free mag holder and sweatshield upgrades, so even if it's not the right size I can resell it all to someone and not be out by too much.

It also fits a bunch of Star pistols.

Got it in the mail today, the #12D. Says "For medium pistols with a barrel up to 5 inches". I have to push it way down, but it doesn't wiggle too much. They also threw in a mag holster, which practically swallows up the magazine (just the lip sticks out, but enough for me to get a grip on in a hurry).

Actually, doing some poking around on their site, the plain #12 (no bloody A, B, C, or D), its two inches shorter and probably a better fit. I'm going to write and ask if they'll let me exchange

The problem I have with a shorter fit is the sharp edges of the now exposed hammer digs into my side.

I think the sweat shield upgrade takes care of that

Got the new one, size #12 (for 1911 frames with 3 inch barrels). Perfect fit, and with the sweatshield it covers up the hammer too.
